Not a bad idea. Is it available as an svg or higher resolution image. Not sure if it can be done in time for the event at this point but I also go with the LUG to a science festival in April.

Ah, good that you mention it, a while ago I searched for the svg sources of some of our stuff, this is what I found:

Maybe Charlie has a full copy of the svg sources?

I've written that attendees should ask for a dollar off the non-member fees (or a dollar refund for members) in protest of LibrePlanet being censored this year.

VP Alexandre Oliva submitted a talk this year-- not having a talk accepted is commonplace, but his talk was accepted. He was not formally replied to, but through side-channels learned that after his speech was accepted he would not be invited to give his talk, not because of anything he planned to say but because of what he MIGHT say. http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/blogs/lxo/ ... rs.en.html

Specifically, that he might say something supportive of Stallman.

Note that the official policy of the FSF, detemined by the board of directors, was never to censor Stallman supporters, or support Stallman censors. The official policy of the board was to stay the course. http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/blogs/lxo/ ... up.en.html The actions of the FSF since September, from 2 people censoring pro-Stallman messages on the mailing lists (now exposed and dismissed as biased moderators) as well as unofficial / unwritten policy on a staff level at the FSF, has generally been to censor and stifle people who want Stallman back.

When this spreads to LibrePlanet cancelling their own VP's accepted speech because of FEAR he might say something the board doesn't forbid-- something the FSF has no official policy on-- it is not truly Libre. I'm calling the 2020 event NonfreePlanet: "If it can't be libre as in speech, it might as well be gratis as in beer."

The non-cancelled guests this year include Brewster Kahle, one of the world's most prominent librarians, of humanity's largest library.

Librarians are fierce opponents of political censorship-- and tend to solve problems not by cancellation, but with open discussion. I have asked Brewster Kahle in my article to withdraw in protest. I don't think anybody has to worry about him actually doing that. I am informed that FSF staff read these articles closely.

My friend, who had originally applied to the board of directors this year (after I recommended him, after two people had suggested I join the board of the FSF, including one board member-- I declined) is holding onto his money rather than attending. He has already cancelled his membership-- I tried to talk him out of that.

I will be sure to catch Jastiv's presentation on video if possible-- good luck with your speech!

I don't any space or conference related to FSF is a safe space.

Then ended up accepting my talk for Free Software Game Restoration but the in person conference is cancelled. I don't know what will be done for a virtual presentation.

At least that should make it easy to do recordings :)

I will be doing my virtual presentation. Testing went ok, so hopefully it will all work out. I will be there. It is not like I'm going to be busy going to in person events.

The closing speeches on both days seemed to have a lot of issues, but my talk and dulsi's seemed to have gone well.

I had trouble catching the beginning of talks. Being home was a bit of a distraction. Overall I did think it went well.
